Mac OS Upgrade Compatibility Issues November 10, 2020
On November 12, 2020, Apple is scheduled to release macOS 11.0, Big Sur. If you are using a Mac, please note that upgrading to Big Sur can cause compatibility issues with your current software. The current version of Cisco AnyConnect is not compatible with Big Sur – if you wish to use Cisco AnyConnect with Big Sur, please download the newest version of Cisco AnyConnect from the IT website VPN webpage . We recommend confirming with your software vendors that they have a Big Sur compatible release for their software before upgrading.
